If the perimeter of the adult pinball machine is 177 inches, what is the length of Segment G,A,?

Let x be the length of GA

So.....the perimeter of the adult model is the sum of all the side lengths....so

56 + 56 + 35 + x = 177 simplify

147 + x = 177 subtract 147 from both sides

x = 30 = length of GA

Chris has given you GA G'A' will be of proportionate length

14/35 = G'A' / 30

G'A' = 30 14/35 = 12 inches
